If you wish to share a portion of a video hosted on Youtube with friends, the conventional way is by sharing the video with start and end time of the video. However, a better approach is to use SnipSnip.it – which can do automatic cropping and sharing of any portion of a Youtube video.
1. First navigate your browser to www.snipsnip.it
2. In the text box, enter the URL of the Youtube video, which you wish to crop and share. Press Enter.
3. You will be prompted to enter the start and end time of the video. If you do not enter any end time, the video will be cropped till the end. Press Snipt It.
4. You will be given with embed code, which can be used to embed the video into your Webpage, and als a URL which you can send your friends for sharing it with them.
The above steps can be used to automatically crop and share videos of any portion. It is particularly useful when you wish to share only a specific portion of a long video with another user.
